A new Q&A document for the Islay vessel project has been published by Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL).

The questions were submitted to CMAL during and after a virtual community meeting on 14 January, which was organised to engage islanders and other stakeholders in the design and planning process for the new ferry to service Islay and Jura.
A large volume of questions was received, some with sub questions and complex in nature. CMAL has given the questions full consideration to ensure responses are robust, with input required from several parties for some responses.
When built, the new ferry will complement MV Finlaggan, although it will be designed with a clear focus on freight, and sufficient passenger accommodation will be designed to meet anticipated demand.
